Things to do in Calgary Summer 2016 Events

Pool side yoga on at Hotel Arts

Grab your yoga mat and head downtown to Hotel Arts to enjoy an hour of pool side yoga Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9am. Click here to register online for the $15 class.

Make a splash at Slide The City

Slide The City returns to Calgary for another year – for only one day. Release your inner child by sliding down the longest water slide the city has to offer on July 30.

Go on a hike

With Calgary being so close to the mountains, we’d be foolish not to take advantage of them. Plus, it’s a pretty rewarding feeling to know you literally conquered a mountain. Not to mention if you find yourself sore after a long day’s hike, the hot springs are never too far away.

Enjoy Pop-up picnics all summer long

The picnics, which begin June 22 and run through August 24, are community lunch hours which take place in various locations around town. Between noon and 1 pm, organizers supply tables, chairs and entertainment; each picnic has a unique theme and will be in a different location every week.

Jump on a bike

There are beautiful bike paths in Calgary, that many of us don’t know about. So jump on your bike without the worry of vehicles whizzing past you. Click here for five beautiful bike paths in Northwest Calgary you need to experience this Summer.

Rafting down the Bow River

A perfect way to cool off and relax on a hot summer day. Grab a raft and lifejacket (yes they’re required) and sail away to leisurely paradise. You can start from Baker Park or Bowness Park and it’s free with you own raft and lifejacket or you can rent from Lazy Day Raft Rentals.
